The '''University of the State of New York''' ('''USNY''', ) is the state of New York|New York's governmental umbrella organization for both public and private institutions, in New York State. The "university" is not an educational institution: it is, in fact, a licensing and school accreditation|accreditation body that sets standards for schools operating in New York State, from pre-kindergarten through professional and graduate school, as well as for the practice of a wide variety of professions. It is a synonym for the New York State Board of Regents. It should not be, though often is, confused with the State University of New York.
